DARIUSZ Kopec is on a crusade to convert vehicles in Keighley to use gas rather than petrol or diesel.

The Polish mechanic, who regards working on cars as both a job and passion, has opened an automotive repair centre at the River Technology Park, off Brewery Street.

He started out as as V8 Autogas LPG in Shipley in 2018, converting vehicles to liquid petroleum gas (LPG).

He said: “I strive to be the best LPG specialist in the UK. It has always been my dream. LPG is a great alternative to other fuels, and I believe it is the future. My new place in Keighley will allow me to develop my business better.

“In the future, I would like to open a parts store and my own LPG station. I also want to create a YouTube channel and talk about my passion for cars.”

Dariusz, 36, has 20 years of experience in the automotive industry. Visit v8autogas.co.uk for further information.
